    Govt prioritizing thorium power plant in Bangka Belitung: PT ThorCon

    March 31, 2023 - Thai News Service


      The Indonesian Government is prioritizing the construction of a thorium power plant on Gelasa Island, Bangka Belitung (Babel) Islands Province, to support national energy production, PT ThorCon Power Indonesia has said.

      "The government has ordered the National Energy Council (DEN) regarding the two priority provinces for PLTN (nuclear power plant) and PLTT (thorium power plant) construction in West Kalimantan and Babel," Operations Director at PT ThorCon Power Indonesia Bob S. Effendi said in Pangkalpinang on Wednesday.

      He informed that ThorCon Power is also targeting to build a PLTT in Babel in 2026 in order to support energy development in Indonesia.

      Currently, it (the PLTT project) is still in the study stage, one of which is ecology and environmental capacity," he said.

      ThorCon Power has been conducting an ecological study for the past year on Gelasa Island, Central Bangka District, and the results have been positive, he disclosed. In the future, an Environmental Impact Analysis (EIA), spatial planning, and other studies will be carried out.

      "This is a first and concrete step," he stated.

      According to Effendi, any development activity will have an impact and it is impossible that it will not. But, based on the study, all of the impacts of the company's power plant can be mitigated.

      "There is no impact from the results of an impact study that has no permanent mitigation, everything can be mitigated," he said.
